Inspecting Service Entrance Cables
When performing infrared inspections of electrical systems, many thermographers tend to focus their attention on outdoor substations and overhead electric lines. Unexpected failures can occur when service entrance cables are overlooked.
How Dust Creates Full Size Thermal Imagery
When performing an infrared inspection of the interior of a building, you may be able to visually observe full-size thermal images without your thermal imager. The cause of this phenomenon is simple dust and dirt normally found within most buildings.
Outsourcing IR Services
Whether you are considering instituting an IR inspection program or already have one in place, obtaining competent manpower can be a challenge. One potential solution is to outsource services for additional manpower and expertise.
Files Worth Saving
With year-end in sight, many will begin the annual process of clearing out files and getting ready for the upcoming year. In this week’s Tip, we share some thoughts on files that you may wish to keep.
Setting Temperature Limits
Over the past thirty years, a number of temperature severity guidelines have been published by various organizations. When using these guidelines, you may compare similar components under similar load to each other OR compare the subject component to ambient. The former of these approaches is recommended since ambient temperature can swing widely over time. Furthermore, it is often impossible to obtain an accurate ambient temperature for devices located within an enclosure once the enclosure has been opened for the infrared inspection.
Checklists: Often-Overlooked Improvement Tools
"D’ya think I’m stupid? Checklists are for dummies." "I know what I’m doing. I’ve done it for years." "Why would I ever need a checklist?" These types of remarks sum up what, even now, is a widely held view among maintenance and reliability teams on many plant floors.
Intrinsically Safe Equipment
Intrinsically safe test equipment is a requirement for workplaces where combustible gasses may be present. Prior to performing an infrared inspection in such areas, it is important to understand the meaning and importance of this requirement.
